Spicy Blue Cheese Potato Chips
Spicy Blue Cheese Potato Chips (or crisps for my U.K friends) are like spicy potato chip nachos. With just 3 ingredients, this really is the fastest and easiest snack or appetizer.
I was first turned on to this dish years ago when my husband and I were dating. He took me to Scottsdale Arizona for the weekend where we ate at his favorite restaurant (it’s actually a bar that serves food), called AZ/88. They call them ‘Hell’s Fire Chips’. The name is a little crazy, but if you’re a hot sauce fan you will feel the fire after eating these.
A little fact: They used to call this appetizer Hell’s Fire Fries. Where that has a good ring to it, I can see how that would be miss-leading to the customers thinking that they were getting fries instead of chips. Of course, if this dish was in England, they would be called Hell’s Fire Crisps. This dish would actually be really good using fries.
The hot sauce of choice (and of AZ-88) is Arizona Gunslinger Jalapeño Sauce. The deep smokiness works so well with the tangy blue cheese. You can actually use any smoky hot sauce you like, I have yet to find one that didn’t taste good.
I use this sauce in other dishes like my Sonoran Jalapeño Lime Sauce which is a dressing and marinade that I use in Mexican Grilled Corn and Squash Salad.
When it comes to the potato chips/crisps, unsalted is ideal because of the saltiness of the blue cheese. Also, if you’re so inclined, you can gild the lily and add crispy bacon bits.
I also make a low carb/keto version of this recipe replacing the chips with mini sweet peppers. Check that out here > Spicy Blue Cheese Mini Sweet Peppers.

Mmmm, these look awesome! I would love to eat these today with lunch! GReat combination of flavors here!
Nice. Making from scratch (as restaurant does) would take it to another level. I’ve been to AZ a few times. He’ll Fire Chips are great. Gotta go ‘from scratch’ route. Best cruch is done by flash frying.
I am a sucker for anything spicy and this has me drooling all over my desk. Infact, your pics made me go to my fridge and bring out my fire sauce. I am going to make this recipe next weekend and send you pics for it.
Looks great! I love a good spicy snack! Have a great weekend!!
You just combined some of my favorite foods into a new snack!!
